These “Bay Studies” are derived from my Periphery Project walks around the San Francisco Bay, and each corresponds with a specific location. They are made using inks, acrylic washes, and drawing mediums, on heavy hot-press watercolor paper. The grids and columns are then meticulously hand-cut, revealing dimension, and contrasting the atmosphere of the subject with the physicality of the painting itself. Works can be hung, unframed, with magnets, or floated within a deep frame. An artist friend of mine cleverly described these works as “Turner meets the motherboard”.
